So here it is the last thread of this year's worlds and hopefully we get a great final to see us off. I think most on here with no financial attachment would love to see the forum favourite Gary "Subtitles" Anderson win but he has to go out and do it.

Phil Taylor v Gary Anderson:

SF - Taylor bt Raymond Van Barneveld 6-2
Ave: 102.39
180's: 8
HC: 124
CO%: 49%

Anderson bt Michael Van Gerwen 6-3
Ave: 102.2
180's: 8
HC: 80
CO%: 50%

So the final sees Phil chase his 17th title against Gary chasing his first. Given his impeccable semi final record I'd actually say Anderson is happier to play him in the final than a semi though as he's never lost a semi but has lost 3 finals. Taylor averaged 102 and change in his win but at no point did it ever feel like it. He struggled for 2 sets and allowed Barnet to come back into the match then put on a spurt for 10 legs that saw him pull away again. However I remain unconvinced by these new darts and I think if Anderson can put pressure on him then he is there to be beat. Anderson meanwhile averaged over 100 for the 9th time in his last 10 tv matches which shows a new level of consistency that wasn't previously there. His finishing on tops especially was tremendous and if he can do it again I fully expect him to put it up to Taylor. So where is the value? I think on the win market Taylor is rightly favourite based on his experience and the fact he is still churning out decent averages. However Gary did win his last tv meeting so that will give him even more belief he can do it tonight. On the maxes and HC markets I don't like the look of anything but I was looking for a special that isn't priced up unfortunately (the market was would there be a finish on D1). So what is the bet for tonight? Well looking back at over the previous finals I came across a little bit of value I hope and will give us an interest all the way through the match. Taylor has played in 3 previous finals at Alexandra Palace and won them all. However in 2 of those wins he hit a 170 checkout and when he beat Whitlock they both hit the highest available out. So I'm gonna have a small play on a 170 HC and also Taylor to hit a 170.

Recommendation: 1pt win 170 HC @ 4/1 (PP) and Taylor 170 check @ 15/2 (PP)

Summary: Had a thoroughly good laugh on here over the past fortnight as per usual with the highlight being Barney's love in after beating Bunting. Match of the tourney for me was probably Klaasen v Anderson but there have been some terrific games and hopefully 1 more to come. I try not to be biased on here either but I do have a small financial interest in him and even without that I'd like to say "Come on Gazza!!!!!!"

Il tell you one thing. First to ten legs eg last month. Or first to 7 sets is a long enough format to sort the best. If you can't see that I give up. Yea first to 5 bit of a lottery. And yeah the one your talking about he's ace but you could argue double that format again and suits someone else. Gets a bit silly

If I remember rightly, someone posted a thread about all the footballers as lodgers and how only the white guys had been paying rent and how the op knew for a fact that so and so had been there etc etc.

The same day she came on the fred and went through the list, naming them and saying this one she'd never met, this one had never been a lodger, this one she only knew to talk to and wotnot. Some bright spark noticed that one of the footballers was not denied. I think it was Nathan Ellington, although it could have been Jason Roberts. Anyway, it wasnt denied. Then, people were questioning whether it was her or not. She said it was.

Thread got deleted prompto.

Well done guys , these darts threads have been great , couldn,t be more happy for GA even without a punt , easily my fav player but thought my money might just be the usual kiss of death . Great drama last night I thought ,still think Taylor is one of the worst losers in the game , the fact that GA  had to tap him on the shoulder after the win to get a reaction is bad sportsmanship by him .
Would loved to have seen Bunting play in the semi , thought he was a shoe in for the most 180 v Barney who only hit 3 in his previous match , Bunting hit 30 odd 140s but was way off Barney in the 180 scores , Barney looked beat before he started against Taylor , at least Bunting would of given him a right go imo and just might of given him a right old scare , never mind ,its been awesome and about time GA is now a World Champ ,he could of ended up the Jimmy White of darts
Report cooperman12 January 5, 2015 12:37 PM GMT
I'm no Taylor fan jon b but if a player isn't interested in shaking hands after hitting the winning double (and we'll forgive Anderson in this case as he's just become world champion) then you can't expect his opponent to stand around like a scarecrow waiting for his celebrations to die down before shaking hands. I have no problem with celebrations, but shake your opponents hand first, prefably before pulling your darts. It seems this has been lost in recent years with the money and prestige involved, players jumping around like lunatics celebrating while the defeated opponent must hang around waiting on a handshake.
Report jon b January 5, 2015 2:40 PM GMT
I agree , but that hardly happened in this case , yes GA walked to the side but Taylor couldn,t wait to  turn away but also take a while to put the darts away , that could of waited until after any handshakes etc ,, he waited for gary to approach him and wasn,t interested in watching him take the plaudits from the crowd etc ,, basically he imo had his back to him to long ,a little rude imo ,, a great winner is Taylor but and I know nobody likes losing but I dont find him often gracious in defeat , oh and I am a fan of Taylor ,he has been and still is a fantastic player , nobody will dominate any sport like he has over such a long period ,just think he must be wise enough by now to know how to take the downside to sport as well as the up side
Report cooperman12 January 5, 2015 3:29 PM GMT
A bit of both regarding the handshake afterwards. I lost all respect for Taylor regarding the phantom double 12 v Winstanley, he said afterwards he'd replay the match(doesn't answer the question), he said once the ref calls game shot it's over (doesn't answer the question), the question being did you know it wasn't in? Well Winstanley is standing at least 6ft behind Taylor and he queried it. Also this carry on of shoving the board under the nose of someone he's just beaten to sign is well out of order, as are his prescripted interviews.
